Reasonable adjustment

Standards: Clause 1.8

The RTO implements an assessment system that ensures that assessment (including recognition of prior learning):

a) complies with the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course;
b) is conducted in accordance with the Principles of Assessment contained in Table 1.8-1 and the Rules of Evidence contained in Table 1.8-2.

Table 1.8-1: Principles of Assessment

Fairness
The individual learner’s needs are considered in the assessment process. Where appropriate, reasonable adjustments are applied by the RTO to take into account the individual learner’s needs.

Definition of reasonable adjustment

Reasonable adjustments are those that would not cause unjustifiable hardship on the RTO. For example, if the costs of making adjustments to the premises are such that they would cause hardship to the RTO, it would not be expected that such adjustments are made.

The definition is contained in Fact Sheet ‘Providing quality training and assessment services to students with disabilities.
